WARNING: POSSIBLE LINK BETWEEN CHROMATE PIGMENTS AND LUNG CANCER
Several independent technical studies have suggested that excessive inhalation of zinc chromate dust may cause lung cancer. On the basis of these findings, the manufacturers have requested that the sale of zinc chromate primer and zinc chromate primer aerosol be restricted to commercial or professional shop use. Professional users should be certain that workers are not exposed to concentrations in excess of the O.S.H.A. threshold limit value (TLV) of 0.1 milligram (as chromium) per cubic meter. If conditions are such that this limit may be exceeded, additional protective equipment is required. A respirator that has a NIOSH/MESA approval TC-23C. See catalog for respirators that meet this requirement.
Lycoming engine was recently rebuilt and this product color matched perfectly.
gold color is petty good match for the TCM gold, however it may take 3 coats for a solid covering. Has a tendency to run.
Per manufacturer: When used over bare metal you will need to prep and prime the surface before using this engine enamel.
Primer is not commonly used for engine cases, but a 2-part epoxy primer would work very well.
